25km of navigation between Castellane and the entrance of the Grand Canyon, alternating between fast rapids and quieter sections that allow you to rest your arms and take in the beautiful scenery.
This whole-day trip is quite physically demanding.
The picnic by the river, with a glass of rosé in hand, is lovely and the provides the perfect opportunity for a quick nap before setting off again...
As this activity is a bit more technical and challenging than rafting, we recommend having some prior canoeing (two-seater) or kayaking (solo) experience… or that you are a confident swimmer…!
Description Canoeing and kayak : Canoeing and kayak formula Whole-day-trip
For all canoeing and kayaking activities starting from Castellane, the EDF dams MUST be open.
Otherwise, we use the reduced water flow to ‘swim’ through the Grand Canyon du Verdon. This is our famous AQUA-TREKKING activity!
In July and August, the dams normally open on Tuesdays and Fridays.
Apart from these two months, there are no set rules; it all depends on the rain and snowfall we’ve had over winter.
However, if the sun is out, a white-water activity is always possible somewhere (the Haut Verdon or the Gorges de Daluis in spring, Aqua-trekking, Canyoning...).
If you give us a ring we can go through all the possible options with you.
